Answered by: Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli
I am 27 years, old married. I have severe anxiety of going to work, I am not keen about working because I wanna build my own business and actually things are moving since I’ve been an entrpreneur for 2 years. When I got the job, I have mixed feelings since my mother has been forcing me to get a job. When I go to work, sometimes I’m ok, but when it comes, I just feel that I just wanna quit. I’m helpless & my mind feels just like shutting down. My husband has been very supportive but I think I need help, if I am normal, probably I would just keep the job and build my business concurrently. So please, help me. Thank you.
